Actress Priyanka Chopra, who is the global UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Child Rights, visited Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh’s Cox's Bazar on Monday. The lady shared many pics on social media talking about the condition of the Rohingya refugee kids. Her post invited many trolls. It is heart-breaking to see that rather than appreciating the lady, people are targeting her for some lame reasons. Have a look at the post shared by the actress.
Priyanka donned UNICEF T-shirt and covered her head with scarf. She was all smiles as she interacted with kids.
When Mansur Ali, 12 yrs old, first came to the Child Friendly Space (CFS) at the Balukhali camp, he was only drawing scenes of bloodshed and violence. Helicopters shooting at him and his friends playing soccer... or his village and home being on fire with burning bodies all around him.. Today, his drawings reflect a more hopeful story, one we would like all these children to have. Since the #Rohingya children have arrived in Cox’s Bazar, they have been living in overcrowded camps with no real place that to call their own. Imagine a space that lets you forget your troubles and be a child again... even if its only for just a few hours a day. For the Rohingya children, over 300,000, in the camps in Bangladesh this is the only space that allows them to be kids. These Child Friendly Spaces created by @unicef give kids access to art, music, dance, sport, and counselling etc. The space has often proved to be very therapeutic, helping these kids deal with the horrific situations they faced.. the @unicef aid workers work tirelessly to make sure these children find their spirit again. It doesn’t matter where a child is from or what his or her circumstances are... NO child deserves a life without hope for the future. The world needs to care. We need to care.

This is not the first time something like this has happened as PeeCee has earlier become the victim of social media trolls many times. Internet can be a dangerous place sometimes as people are ruthless with their tweets. It goes without saying that celebrities are the easy targets and whatever they do are scrutinise by Twitterati.
I’m in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh today for a field visit UNICEF, visiting one of the largest refugee camps in the world...https://t.co/PFhJgXwSpmhttps://t.co/quZxXEcDX5#ChildrenUprooted #UNICEFFieldVisit @unicef @UNICEFBD pic.twitter.com/NSSY0aNPuN— PRIYANKA (@priyankachopra) May 21, 2018
Well, it is yet to be seen if the lady reacts to the whole issue.
This visit should be aimed at helping refugees and not just a selfie stunt .— Ahmed Raza (@KingAhmedRaza) May 21, 2018
